In the PBS series, MAKING BLACK AMERICA: THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE, famed documentarian, Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr., sits down with noted scholars, politicians, cultural leaders and old friends to explore what it means to be a Black American in a country where racial discrimination and white supremacy still exist. Join us as Host Eddie Robinson facilitates a recent panel discussion about the film that was recorded live in front of a virtual audience. The panel of guests include the film's award-winning producer and director, Stacey Holman; acclaimed historian who's featured in the project and University of Texas at Austin professor, Dr. Ashley Farmer; and Senior Pastor of the historic Good Hope Missionary Baptist Church in Houston and KTSU radio host, Pastor Dr. D.Z.
